14 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14 (NIV)
Esters uncle Mordecai is talking to her about the murder of her people sanctioned by the king and about her speaking out about it. The king’s first wife was killed for disrespecting him so after her uncle asks her to talk to the king she is scared. Nobody can talk to the king without him summoning him. In life we get scared to speak up, even when it is important. We might not be dealing with death like Ester but we are put in the positions we are for a reason. God places us where we need to be. When looking over where we are and how God put us there we cannot doubt why He put us there. Being a leader means you have influence so look around at the people you are with and see if there is someone who needs to know about God.
Who can you speak to about God this week? Pray to God that he places the right words and puts you in an opportunity to share your faith.
